Brad Hunt is making it very hard for the Vegas Golden Knights to send him to the minors.

Hunt leads the team in scoring with six points in four games and has been a force on the power play.

The Golden Knights still have 11 defensemen in camp and while it is likely they will make a couple of trades, it should be interesting to see what happens to Brad Hunt.
